you’re gray in rain, and green in sun
chameleon lover, what have you done?
don’t change for me, I wanna see
the colors you were made to be
I’ll hold you close, won’t let you go
and tell you everything I know
I’ll sing to you, and somewhere I didn’t know..
I can explain the irregularity in my posting: I had my internals, and the laptop wasn’t working. I was too stupid to find out that the problem was the lack of charge..
KOATES aren’t a popular band to begin with, not in the indie part of the YouTube, or on SoundCloud, but they’ve gotta be one of the best start-up bands in existence. I came across them on Instagram, listened to their 2 singles uploaded on YouTube, and wrote them a message exclaiming how marvelous their music was. Guess what? they wrote back thanking me! Now, they’ve signed a Spotify deal, but these two songs will remain as their best work.
KOATES are supposedly a band of friends from England. There’s so few things I know about this band, and it’s all from their Instagram; sometimes, I think social media’s a blessing. I know a good band when I listen to one, and I see so much potential here. The music is well-made, the lyrics are simple and sweet, and the vocals are quaint. They make wonderful music with only one or two instruments of usually the same kind.
‘Change is inevitable, but also acceptable’. ‘Chameleon lover’ is a beautiful and heart-felt, handwritten tune about asking your lover to not change for you because they’re ever-so perfect. the lyricist talks about exploring the various shades of their personality, while falling completely in love with them. He wants to tell them everything he knows, because he can and wants to. Everything about this song is so charming – the simple guitar, the beautiful vocals, the endearing lyrics, and whatnot! If a live performance sounds so delightful, you can only imagine the quality of an original studio recording. I’ve got nothing more to say, for the song speaks for itself. All I can hope for is they climb the stairway to success in a short-time, because they deserve it.
